Bath & North East Somerset Council have lots of maps. Old maps, new maps, big maps, small maps.

Some maps have already been released as Open Data and people have made wonderful things with them, but we think we can do more!

This meeting is a chance to meet the Council's GIS and IT teams and help the Council describe the maps it has in a way that will be relevant to you as well as talk about priorities for release.

Ultimately this is the start of a project to get more of the Council's maps published as Open Data and to help people do interesting things with them.

If you're a GIS whizz, or you've only ever looked at Google Maps to find a bus stop, this session is for you.

If you're a part of the Open Street Map community we'd also like to hear your views on how Open Street Map could be used more extensively inside and outside the Council.
